Ontario byelections come at difficult time for Kathleen Wynne's Liberals

Two Ontario provincial byelections on Thursday come at a difficult time for Premier Kathleen Wynne's Liberal government. Her party is at its lowest point in the polls in years and the premier's approval ratings are even worse than her predecessor's, Dalton McGuinty.

And when his ratings were plumbing new depths, McGuinty announced he would resign.

Byelections are being held in the ridings of Ottawa–Vanier and Niagara West–Glanbrook, the former a solid stronghold for the Liberals and the latter a bastion of the Progressive Conservatives.

  1. Difficult to see the Liberals winning either riding today although by-elections with their unpredictable and usually low turnout gives them some hope in Vanier. Even if they do it is difficult to see Wynne making it to the next election. What a mistake she has turned out to be!

  2. Well the results are in
    Liberals retained Ottawa-Vanier.
    Conservatives won Niagara with the youngest MPP ever. He's only 19 !!
